Q.

Do I need a chancel search? We are buying a Poynton property close by a priory.

Chancel repair liability can require home owners to cover the cost of repairs to church property in the locality. Terms used in a property's name, like 'abbeylands', may indicate chancel liability. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Ecclesiastical properties in the local area include St George.

Q.

The local agent has named the property lawyer who they generally use. Is it risky to use them?

A.

An agent may suggest a law firm to handle your conveyancing, however, such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as the agent may recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Are there any conservation areas in Poynton?

A.

Areas considered to be of historic or architectural significance, like picturesque villages, may be recognised as conservation areas. The benefits of such restrictions include confidence that property will retain its value, but they can add to maintenance costs.

Q.

What local factors can affect land in Poynton, and are they checked for thoroughly?

A.

Land may have been contaminated by many environmental factors. Issues like military land will be investigated during the conveyancing process. Land Next To Macclesfield Canal, Lyme Park, Cheshire, SK12 2NS may be one Poynton source of contamination.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if we are purchasing in the parish of Waverton?

A.

Regardless of the Poynton parish you are purchasing in, the solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on current owners, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will continue to be free from liability. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
